The President's Roundtable on Alcohol & Other Drugs is a campus and community coalition that was established in 1998. Efforts are aimed toward developing strategies that include environmental approaches (such as more vigorous enforcement of zero tolerance laws, other drinking and driving laws, and strategies to reduce the availability of alcohol) as well as initiatives that target individual drinkers (implementation of routine alcohol screening, counseling and treatment).
Events & Accomplishments
Kutztown University received state funding for the Pennsylvania Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant for the 2008-2012 fiscal years. The grant concluded and a final report was made available July 2012.
During the 2012-2013 academic year, the President's Roundtable took the findings of the report and focused on building the coalition capacity. The Steering Committee met throughout the academic year that included stakeholders from campus offices, local police force, local government agents, local school district, and local businesses. The coalition supports alcohol screenings, Training for Intervention ProcedureS (TipS® ) for the university, the Great American Smokeout, and interactive educational displays at events and workshops.
At the conclusion of the 2012-2013 academic year, the President's Roundtable on Alcohol & Other Drugs made a decision to look for outside funding opportunities that would provide an opportunity to support alcohol and other drugs prevention efforts.
